Fairbanks Retriever Club is
the oldest established retriever club in Alaska. Originally
known as the Alaska Field Trial Association, it has been
active in the Interior of the state since the early 1950s.
In 1960 it was formed under its current name of Fairbanks
Retriever Club. Through the years and despite changes in
members and leadership, the club remains dedicated to all
the retriever breeds and helping their owners improve their
knowledge and skills in training, testing, trialing and
hunting their dogs.
course of the year, we hold training
classes, outdoor field sessions, picnic trials and AKC hunt
tests and field trials.
We welcome all retriever owners, from the beginner puppy owner
all the way to the seasoned trainer!
